Re: ldconfig problem

I'm using cygwin for the first time to compile my programs.

I get the following error during dynamic loading of my libraries.
And I came to know that there is no concept of "ldconfig".

So how do I load my dynamic libraries while compiling.

this is the command i run on linux platform, which works well.
$ gcc `xml2-config --cflags --libs` -o save save.c  --> /usr/local/lib
has the library to linked with this.

but how do i compile this in cygwin.
and the error I get in cygwin is,
undefined reference
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Order matters on Win32 platforms. You *may* find the following resolves the link problem you were seeing:

gcc `xml2-config --cflags` -o save save.c `xml2-config --libs`

Note: I didn't try the above and I have no experience with xml2-config.
